problem #3

At the first filling of gas tank, fuel came out of bad gasket and spilled fuel causing wicked bad fuel smell through out interior of car. Heater has never operated properly. The only way that you can be comfortable in cold weather is to operate manually. The alternator has always had a very noticeable and annoying hum at slow speeds. The alternator has been replaced twice, with no improvements in the noises. Power assist failed and as a result I lost all braking and a strong odor developed inside the car. This is ok now and along with the gas tank is the only things that have been repaired.

When fuel tank is filled to max, vehicle will quit while driving and has to be towed to dealer. Dealer says this is normal. Do not fill gas tank to full. We feel this policy would be unsafe for anyone who did not receive these instructions, filled to full, and pulled onto a main thoroughway.
